about

The listener will likely infer that the girl who seems to be the subject of the narrator's attention in the song is actually a hard drug of one variety or another. With such an infectious dancing beat and catchy keyboard melodies, you might not expect such a heavy set of lyrics.

lyrics

Needles nick my naked veins
And you thought me sane for a time, girl
Holding onto smoke and flames
Leaving my body behind, girl
I just can't make the time for
A life or a plan or a love or a home
You'll be the death of me
But neither of us seem to mind girl

Overtake me
I'm sedated past the brink
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Overtake me
In my head my eyes will sink
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed

It just seems to numb my brain
If for but a moment in time girl
Sight is distant and delayed
I'm chasing a dream that has died girl

Overtake me
I'm sedated past the brink
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Overtake me
In my head my eyes will sink
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed

Girl, you might be wondering
Are you my cure
Or were you my personal hell?
I know you might be missing me
But girl...
I did this to my...

Overtake me
I'm sedated past the brink
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Overtake me
In my head my eyes will sink
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed
